Welcome to Croftland Farm

Located at the edge of the Kettle Moraine area in eastern Wisconsin, Croftland is a small farm focused on the production of select purebred Katahdin and Dorset sheep. The hills are well suited to a flock designed to thrive on forage. The handling of sheep and pasture rotation is made both pleasant and efficient with the help of trained, capable Border Collies.

A pastime of knitting led to experimentation with fleeces suitable for handspinning and yarn. The quantity of wool produced quickly outgrew the time to utilize the fiber. The quest for high luster fiber and the love of color has fed the enjoyment of working with this wool.

Upcoming Events

 

The December-January Ile de France x Dorset lambs are on the ground and gaining nicely, in spite of the cold weather. There will be a nice selection of multiple birth, ram and ewe lambs at weaning.

The purebred Katahdin lambs are expected starting in mid-February.
